Microsoft to release next version of CE

Software giant Microsoft will announce at its developer's conference Monday that the next version of its operating system for embedded devices, Windows CE 5.0, will be available on July 9.

The company is also allowing licensees for the first time to ship products incorporating changes they've made to the source code for CE 5.0 without having to share those modifications with Microsoft, partners or competitors. Previously code-named "Macallan", CE 5.0 will include improvements to networking performance, Direct3D mobile support for better gaming, and technology to remotely monitor device performance.
